Speaking volumes of graciousness, this design makes its mark with multi-paned windows with transoms, a high chimney stack and a varied roofline. The floor plan is nothing if not commodious and puts all of its living spaces right up front. Formal living and dining rooms open through decorative columns directly from the entry hall. The living room has a fireplace and the dining room contains space for a hutch. Both spaces have tray ceilings. The family room shares a large open area with the island kitchen and the breakfast nook. It also has a fireplace and a built-in space for an entertainment center. A walk-in pantry offers abundant storage for the kitchen. Family and guest bedrooms line the back of the plan, leaving the master suite to occupy the entire left wing. A spa tub and walk-in closet make the master bath extra special. A three-car garage holds all the family vehicles.
Architectural Styles Associated with this design
Our Ranch style house plan collection comprises single level homes with long street facades. They typically have a rectangular or L-shaped footprint,and low-pitched roof - either hip or gable. There is usually minimal exterior decoration, and they feature simple, open floor plans.
In general, the ranch house is noted for its long, close-to-the-ground profile, and minimal use of exterior and interior decoration. The houses fuse modernist ideas and styles with notions of the American Western period working ranches to create a very informal and casual living style. Their popularity waned in the late 20th century as neo-eclectic house styles, a return to using historical and traditional decoration, became popular. However, in recent years, interest in ranch house designs has been increasing.
Our traditional style houseplans comprise a neo-eclectic style borrowing details from historic styles and adapting to contemporary forms and materials - i.e.: Colonial porches and columns, Tudor half-timber, French steeply pitched hip roof and arched windows, Georgian entry doors or Victorian porch spindle work. Wood exteriors combined with brick or stone trim.
Traditional homes freely borrow from a number of historic styles and combine them to relay a new expression. Many historic styles are also 'traditional' in nature, and are incorporated into the Mascord Collection. Colonial, Tudor, Craftsman, Cape Cod - in this collection of home plans you'll discover floor plans that reflect modern lifestyles with spacious rooms, flexible spaces and modern conveniences, but mixed with distinct architectural flair, curb appeal and modern aesthetic. Expect elements such as free-flowing kitchens, breakfast nooks, and family room combinations.
